For those that have an appreciation of nature and all things ‘Attenborough’, this is a great series, building an appreciation of the various elements of earth and how one effects the other, sometimes with devastating consequences.

Description

David Attenborough presents his epic portrait of the earth’s environ­ments and how plants and animals have adapted to their physical surroundings.

Filmed on five continents, The Living Planet begins with the discovery of how huge forces formed the earth, how continents move and how the planet has become so varied. The next ten episodes then concentrate on different environments of the Earth: the frozen Poles, the northern forests, jungle, grasslands, deserts, the sky, rivers and lakes, tidal shores, islands, and oceans. The final episode then ties in the human angle – looking at how humans have changed the Earth’s habitats, destroying but creating new ones. It also investigates what the future may hold for the whole community on our amazing living planet.

The Living Planet Review

“In 1979 David Attenborough presented Life on Earth, the first wildlife blockbuster series, a chronicle of three-and-a-half billion years of natural history. The Living Planet followed five years later, an equally ambitious 12-part documentary which spanned the globe with portraits of each of the major geographical regions which offer home to life. Attenborough demonstrates how even in the most hostile of environments, from the volcanic "Furnaces of the Earth” to “The Frozen World” of mountains and tundra, the Arctic and Antarctic, live maintains a foothold. He takes us to “The Northern Forests”, the “Jungle”, “Seas of Grass” and “The Baking Deserts”, and ever the genial host, details how in all its endless diversity, life is ingeniously suited to its surroundings. With breathtaking imagery we meet our fellow inhabitants, from penguins to polar bears, lions to scorpions, oaks to eagles, and journey on to “The Open Ocean” and the “New Worlds” which mankind itself is rapidly fashioning through ever more radical technological change. The series ends with an impassioned environmental plea which rings even more urgent now than in 1984." –Gary S. Dalkin
